Abstract:

The $1.6m balance cap proposal adds another layer of complexity to understanding whether an automatically reversionary pension (ARP) is still an appropriate SMSF succession planning strategy.

This article looks at what an ARP is, examples, insurance, income testing, the $1.6m balance cap, and SMSF and pension documentation.
